This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

The Boat Club - Pt. 2

Deb and Tom Tudor were in Buzzy's Country Store this past Sunday discussing their current residence in Tarpon Springs, Florida.  They mentioned a bar called the Boat Club and as they described it, I thought that it sounded familiar.   When they mentioned the boat-stuck-up-in-a-tree I knew that I had previously heard about it somewhere.  

Sure enough, after some research here on the Buzzyblog, I found that back in 2015 I had done a post on the Boat Club after Glenn Guy had told me about his visit there (click here.)   In addition to the links that I included in that 2015 post, here is another description of the Boat Club with the following excerpt (click here)

The Boat Club - Tarpon Springs, FL - The Dive Bar Tourist
All of which just makes me want to pay a visit and check the place out.  As for Buzzy's being compared to such a great dive bar, I am good with and kinda proud of that.  Recall this article that appeared in a San Francisco publication (click here.) 

Of course, the Boat Club features access via a boat, whereas to get to Buzzy's you need a vehicle with wheels.  Something to think about though.
